U.S. Council on Foreign Relations Report Names Journeys as an Example of How to Better Prepare Young Americans to Succeed in the Workforce
Independent Task Force Report No. 76 underscores the need to "strengthen the link between education and employment prospects" to help Americans adapt to new and changing technologies and create a more robust national workforce.
"We at Journeys are honored to be recognized in the report as a resource that can help shape the way Americans reimagine their careers."-Peter Sibley, CEO
"We congratulate the Council on Foreign Relations task force on the release of their important report," said Journeys CEO Peter Sibley. "There is a growing need to rebuild the links among work, opportunity, and economic security for Americans. We at Journeys are honored to be recognized in the report as a resource that can help shape the way Americans reimagine their careers"
When summarizing their recommendations for improving work opportunities for young Americans, CFR task force members again advocate using the Journeys online platform to enable students to see the numerous education pathways available to help them reach their desired career outcomes, including community college programs, CTE, 4-year universities, and military service.
One of the many takeaways from the independent task force report is the need to more effectively align education pathways with existing work opportunities. This will empower the next generation of workers with the skills and resources necessary to succeed in an era of new technologies. Journeys is both inspired and excited to be a part of the initiative.
